What is a bursa?

A bursa is a small sac that usually contains a small amount of fluid. It acts as a cushion between bones and softer tissues such as muscles and tendons. A bursa also reduces the friction between bones and these tissues.

What is the trochanteric bursa?

The trochanteric bursa is the bursa that is located at the outer part of the hip, often referred to as the "point" of the hip.
